St. Louis, Mo. - The Alma College STUNT team picked up two more wins on Saturday, defeating Oklahoma Baptist University 12-11 and Oklahoma City University 20-7.

The match between the Scots and Bison came down to the very last point as the two teams were tied at 10 going into the last round of the fourth quarter.

"Oklahoma Baptist is an amazing team and we always know games against them will be a battle," said Head Coach Michelle Sabourin. "I'm so proud of my coaches and athletes for stepping up and battling through the last point! This was an amazing team win!"

Alma called routine six to end regulation. Although the Scots conceded the tumble point to OBU, Alma won the points in the partner stunts and pyramids routines to earn the victory. The Scots had earned the points in the same routines earlier in the match.

The Scots had an 8-6 lead going into the fourth quarter but OBU tied the game after the first round with two points in routine seven. Alma bounced back in the fifth routine, earning points in the partner stunts and tumble section.

Later, against Central Oklahoma, Alma had a 4-0 lead after the first quarter, earning the points in routines one, two, three and five.

In the pyramids section, Alma took points in routines four and five, shared a point with the Bronchos in the first routine and missed the point in routine two. It was the only point Alma would miss in the match.

UCO came out strong in the third quarter but Alma was undeterred. The Scots earned all four possible points in routines one, three, four and five and held an 11-5 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Alma stayed strong through the fourth and earned all nine points to seal the win. UCO earned two points in routine four, but none in either one or two.
